Global insurer and reinsurer XL Catlin has announced the appointment of Brent Hoffman as Global Head of Claims, effective immediately.
Hoffman will be responsible for leading claims teams across XL Catlin, and will report to Paul Jardine, XL Catlin’s Chief Experience Officer.
Having joined XL in 2014, Hoffman most recently served the company as General Counsel Global Claims, with a place on the Claims Leadership Team.
Greg Hendrick, President, Property and Casualty (P&C) Insurance and Reinsurance at XL Catlin, commented on the appointment: “Brent’s promotion is testament to the bench strength we have in our claims team. His experience and knowledge ideally positions him to lead our claims function of more than 700 colleagues based in 24 countries worldwide.
“Under Brent’s leadership I am confident that we will continue to be recognized by our clients and brokers for the outstanding claims service we provide every day. In fact, our insurance claims operations alone pay out on average USD 103 million a week to clients getting back to business following a loss.”
Before joining XL Catlin, Hoffman spent 12 years at The Hartford, where he held a number of in-house attorney positions in addition to serving as Vice President of the company’s Claim Department, managing groups in both the U.S and UK.
